BARCA WILL DOMINATE

Reluctant Leader

Before the opening game against Spain, Andres Iniesta avoided the limelight that he is starting to deserve very much. In 2010, Iniesta scored a pivotal goal in extra time that brought his team their first World Cup. From that point forward, he has been quick to underplay his own talents and point to the rest of the team and to the team as a whole.

Recently, Andres Iniesta was quoted...

"I just want to perform my role," Iniesta said Saturday. "I've never considered myself any type of leader."

While he may not wish to be seen as a leader, his performance is that of a strong visionary. The following days will put that leadership role to the test with the mid-filed missing a vital David Silva, making Spain a little nervous as the games progress forward.

CHELSEA LOSS WAS UNJUST

Andres Iniesta has described Barcelona’s defeat at the hands of Chelsea as “unjust” and has spoken of the teams regret at failing to finish a series of chances that could have put the Catalans into the Champions League Final.

Iniesta played a key role in the dominant first leg display for the Catalans and is understandably frustrated that the rest of his team were unable to finish off any of a number of good chances provided for them.

Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets all missed good chances that could have at the very least earned Barca a draw in the first leg, and perhaps even a victory. The result though gave Chelsea a slight edge heading into the second leg and enabled them to see off Barca on the way to their first European crown.

INIESTA WANTS FORM TO CONTINUE

Andres Iniesta has said that Barca are looking to maintain their current run of form until the end of the season.

Barcelona were one of the feared opponents in the Spanish la Liga up until this season.

This season, though, Barcelona have been experiencing up-and-down form, which has seen them drop behind Real Madrid in the title race. Barcelona currently trail Real Madrid by a massive 10 points, which has led to many believe that the destination of the title has already been decided. However, the last few weeks has been subtly different for Barcelona because they have been able to find their scoring form once again, which made them one of the best teams in the world.
